Sierra Nevada Summerfest ....

Tonight's beer will be Summerfest (Crisp Summer Lager) from Sierra Nevada Brewing Company.  Twelve ounce bottle shows 5% ABV.  The Sierra Nevada web site lists 28 IBUs.

This beer poured with a very thick, off-white head.  The beer color is a paler, bright yellow - very clear.  Good amount of carbonation.  Mild aroma - kind of a generic "beer" aroma with maybe a few grass-like hints.  The taste is mild and very lager.  However, there is some malt and a foamier mouth feel, as well as some bitter (that lingers) which make this stand out from your run-of-the-mill mild lagers.  Fairly thin finish.  Slight aftertaste - just a little hint of bitter beer.  A nice, clean lager but needs a little more "oomph" for my taste.
